Drenthe craves Feyenoord return

The 24-year-old Dutchman is currently at Goodison Park on a season-long loan deal from Real Madrid after joining the Primera Liga giants from Feyenoord in 2007.

Drenthe, whose contract at the Bernabeu expires in the summer, is looking forward to returning to Rotterdam in the not too distant future.

"I certainly will (play there) once again," he told NUSport. "They're doing well again.

"When? At least by 2015. I still want to have some explosiveness on the pitch. I won't return to sit on the bench."


PSV Eindhoven winger Georginio Wijnaldum is Drenthe's nephew but the 24-year-old has ruled out linking up with the youngster at the Philips Stadion following his summer move from Feyenoord.

"Georginio is my nephew but I can't suddenly join PSV because he is playing there," he added.

"Feyenoord raised him. I said to him 'you're crazy if you do (move to PSV)'. But I respect him."
